comparison image of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon and 2017 Volkswagen CC

The all-new VW Arteon is something bold, elegant, and completely new. This model will offer premium performance, good looks, and luxury features. It has been called the spiritual successor to the Volkswagen CC, which was the last luxury midsize model produced by Volkswagen. In this 2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2017 Volkswagen CC comparison, we wanted to look at these models to highlight the improvements and the luxury that new car shoppers will be able to get with the new Arteon fastback.

Both of these four-door vehicles feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, but new engineering and capability make a huge difference. The 2017 Volkswagen CC offered 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The all-new 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will amp that up to 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The new midsize fastback will also come mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, while the 2017 CC had a six-speed automatic transmission.
